I know AMD has responded nicely to reports from people running piglit
( https://community.amd.com/thread/159406 ),
and Nvidia actually mentioned piglit in one release note
so I guess it's doing some good for more than just mesa.
But one mention doesn't seem seem like enough, so I nudged them today:
I'm still flabbergasted with how easy it is to crash systems with
proprietary nvidia drivers, hope this gets some response.
